go against the interests of our country. that's what we need to be able to protect. if sudan votes to do something or blocks us from doing something that we're interested in doing, then there are plenty of other avenues of recourse for that, too. >> uh-huh. >> but if you're dealing with the oceans and dealing with this question of royalties and other things, the fact that we would preserve the right to protect our interests, i think what the senator and others have raised as an issue is, they don't want money going to dictators. they don't want money going to bad actor countries. we can block that. we can block that until the cows come home. and so i think we can be protected. so, again, we'll go into that, and while the veto word is not used, also not used, incidentally, in the constitution of the united states, but nobody doubts the president has it. so we have the ability to be able to do it through the language that is there, and that will become, i think, more clear as we go forward. senator kuhncoons.
